Living the Lake Travis Lifestyle
The Lake Travis Lifestyle includes a variety of attitudes and values from a variety of people. Lifestyle choices in the area are many — from the neighborhood you live in and how you raise your children to choices about your health and the well-being of others in our community.
Many of us are influenced by our surroundings. Here in the Lake Travis area, we have development, traffic, and water management issues that affect our lifestyle.
Everything from articles that are a little more personal — and sometimes more humorous than others — to creating awareness about traffic and water conservation, this is where you'll tap into the heart of Lake Travis Lifestyle.
No matter what weather forecasts are in the future, when the cold hits Central Texas it always seems to come as a shock.
The polar vortex swept across the U.S. last week and the Lake Travis area was left with chilly sub 40 degree days. But you don’t have to become a hermit this winter and never leave your home just because the air is chilly and the nights come early!
Here are a few things you can do to keep warm when the weather gets chilly in the Lake Travis area.
Austin is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and it’s estimated that 115 people move to Austin each day.
It doesn’t matter where you come from or why you’ve decided to move to Texas, we all have something in common while we are here — we need water to survive.
Travis County is currently at a population of 1.4 million and the boom isn’t expected to slow anytime soon. It’s all happening at a time when the water level in Lake Travis is reaching an all time low.
I love to talk with lifelong residents who have lived in the Lake Travis area for years. They’ve seen so much change, and whether they’re of “the more the merrier” or the “I like it better the old way!” frame of mind (or somewhere in between), there’s a lot we can learn from Austin and Lake Travis area natives.
Still, no matter whether you’re a longtime resident or just relocated to the Lake Travis area, there are always new places to visit, things to discover and history to learn.
So for any readers that think they know the area well and want to test their knowledge of past and current Lake Travis history here is a short, fun quiz of random facts.
Although we see a lot of black and orange this time of year, there’s another color that we associate with October: PINK. Most of us know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Right now pink is everywhere — and with good reason. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2014, about 232,670 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the U.S. Everyone knows someone affected by the disease.
Over the years my family has supported the cause in multiple ways. We’ve donated, run in races and attended fundraising events to raise money for research. I’ve known survivors and ached for family members who have lost loves ones to breast cancer. But never has Breast Cancer Awareness Month hit me as hard as it did this time around.
